On June 16, the Sophos senior management team will give you the inside track on Sophos strategy. Here we preview the speakers and what they will cover.

If you hadn’t heard already, this year the Sophos Partner Conference has gone online. Although we’re disappointed we can’t connect with you in person, we’re excited to share a rich collection of on-demand keynotes and breakouts that will give you all the insights and information you need to accelerate your cybersecurity business.

The event starts worldwide on June 16 and you can add it to your calendar now. In the meantime, here’s what you can expect from our Evolve 2020 keynote speakers.

Sophos Evolve will open with Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman. Unlike in previous years, Kris won’t be able to take to the stage via skateboard or bike, but he will be able to share recent business performance and the outlook for the future. Kris will also take a close look at how Sophos plans to accelerate our mission to deliver the world’s most effective next-generation cybersecurity technology, and the benefits that mission will bring for our customers and our partners.

Sophos Chief Product Officer Dan Schiappa will follow Kris, and it will be no surprise to hear that Dan will talk about our product strategy, specifically our Cybersecurity Evolved approach. And this year, he’s getting very pragmatic – detailing a very sophisticated attack and how the Sophos technologies can be applied to detect and prevent it every step of the way. He’ll talk about how Sophos allows businesses to predict, adapt, and synchronize their security. Dan will demonstrate how Sophos technology takes protection to new levels and how our managed services – like Managed Threat Response  – can take the burden of dealing with incidents off the IT team while keeping your customers in control.

Sophos’s worldwide sales leaders, SVP Global Channels Kendra Krause and Chief Revenue Officer Mike Valentine, complete our keynote lineup. Kendra will share how the Sophos Partner Program is helping our partners grow fast and increase profitability, and will share new tools and initiatives you can use to accelerate you opportunities. Mike will discuss his thoughts on selling in this new environment to help you navigate the business, product, and channel updates, sharing some actionable insights you can put into immediate effect.
